The SportsXchange

The Atlanta Braves hired Doug Dascenzo as third-base coach.

General manager Frank Wren said Monday that Dascenzo will coach outfielders and baserunning. He was the club's minor league roving outfield and baserunning instructor this season.

Dascenzo, 49, replaces Brian Snitker, who was named manager of the Braves' Class AAA team in Gwinnett.

Snitker was the Braves' third-base coach for seven seasons. Prior to that he spent 2006 managing the Class AAA squad in Richmond. He also managed at Class AA Greenville and Mississippi for four seasons.

The rest of the Braves' coaching staff returns, including hitting coaches Greg Walker and Scott Fletcher, bench coach Carlos Tosca, pitching coach Roger McDowell, first-base coach Terry Pendleton and bullpen coach Eddie Perez.
